Representative Text

1 Once I walked the ways of sin, but today my heart is clean,
Purchased with the blood of the Savior;
I have wondrous joy and peace, from the chains of sin release,
Purchased with the blood of the Lamb.

Chorus:
Purchased, I am not my won;
Purchased, I am His alone,
Purchased, with the ransomed known,
Hallelujah I belong to Jesus.

2 All my guilt is now forgiv’n, I am on my way to heav’n,
Purchased with the blood of the Savior;
As I walk the glory way, I’m rejoicing ev’ry day,
Purchased with the blood of the Lamb. [Chorus]

3 When the saved His glory share, hallelujah, I’ll be there,
Purchased with the blood of the Savior;
While the harps of heaven ring, I shall stand before the King,
Purchased with the blood of the Lamb. [Chorus]
